A recent study shows that organizations who already adopted AI in at least one function anticipate that it will reshape many roles in the workforce, with nearly four in 10 of these respondents expecting more than 20 percent of their companies’ workforces would be reskilled.

“Technology moves quickly, but human beings need time to adjust,” states Kolodziej. “I urge workplace leaders to join me for a discussion of how they can utilize new AI technologies to improve learning efficacy and experience.”
